I received the following from Pastor Ben Ball, a faithful voice in the Missouri Synod.
Justin Schwarz, eldest child of Jeff and Beth Schwarz, has Moyamoya disease and the family is on the way to Boston now where Justin will have brain surgery at Children’s Hospital. Surgery is scheduled for July 8. Many of you know Jeff as the producer of Issues, Etc. Following surgery, Justin will be in the ICU for several days and after discharge will remain in Boston for at least a week to follow up. The family can use your financial support for travel, hotel, food and other expenses. St. Paul Lutheran Church, Hamel, IL has established the Justin Fund to assist the Schwarz family. Simply write a check to St. Paul Lutheran Church with “Justin Fund” on the note and all the funds will go to the family. Send to St. Paul Lutheran Church PO Box 247 Hamel, IL 62046 and pray to Our Father for Justin’s health and strength
